1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    An interesting recap, but beside the point.

    That's certainly true but, without getting into the specific case about @Hal Freeman 's fit, that doesn't rule out people offering advice and/or comments, does it? In fact this would become a very boring thread if it was just documentation of what people wear, we could find that in any #menswear blog really. I have received comments on SF that I have completely disregarded for different reasons, but I have also received a few pointers that I have found useful and things that I wouldn't necessarily think of myself.

    Yes. Wore at all over NorCal on Christmas break and it looked great, I thought.

    Continuing the stroll down memory lane, a picture taken in 1986.

    Never seen one worn with a repp striped tie before. It's kind of a cool incoherence.

    1. I am all for advocating that people be themselves. Be yourself and be happy. However, when being yourself, vis-a-vis clothing choices, leads you to look bad in the eyes of a lot of other people, don't get mad when those other people tell you that they think you look bad. You can still be happy about how you look, that is your right, but you also have to be ok with people telling you that they think you look turrble. Such is the dichotomy. 2. Without offering any explanation, these are some fits I quite enjoyed looking at since my last post. I am thinking this may be my new way of contributing, if that can be considered, in fact, a contribution.
    3. Presently, I am wearing an Orlebar Brown hoodie and an H&M tee and sweat pants. Also crocs. I am very happy.

    It's amazing. You should go in autumn when the vineyards are orange-red and the lake plays with the light and appears this electric blue blending into the mountains and contrasting with the orange, and lunch or dine somewhere in the vineyards around Vevey, or further up towards Lausanne for that feeling of infinity from the lake bending around the mountain. The castle then just looks like another fairly large old family residence, almost welcoming (I think its positioning is oppressive though, with the sharp bank "pushing" you into the water against the walls and the high mountains blocking off the horizon).

    E.g. http://cdn.lake-geneva-switzerland.com/wp-content/gallery/lavaux-grandvaux/lavaux-05.jpg (not uploading the picture because off topic).

    British posters will, of course, remember Captain Stephen Peacock from the BBC One comedy show, Are You Being Served?. He was played by Frank Thornton. Capt. Peacock was rarely seen out of a stroller and always with a striped (I assume military) tie:

    Oh yeah. I forgot about that one. We used to have reruns of that show on TV for years. In fact, I think it's still airing here.

    Today, in New York, it is, as they proverbially, colder than the left ventricle of a disaffected sex worker (or, as they say in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, "coldah than a hawse haht").

    To that end, I've donned my warmest suit and overcoat.

    Suit - BB MTM
    Shirt - Tyrwhitt
    Tie - Charvet
    PS - no name brand
    Cufflinks - BB
    Vintage watch chain
    Shoes - Magnanni for Bergdorf Goodman
    Overcoat - BB
    Scarf - New & Lingwood
    Hat - Selentino via JJ Hat Center
